Join us on Saturday, May 11th for the 11th annual Runyon 5K, a unique cancer research fundraising run/walk that uses Yankee Stadium as its course. Run or walk the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take your own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field! You'll even appear on the Jumbotron!
You can participate as an individual or get friends, family members and colleagues together to form a team. 100% of the donations you raise will support innovative cancer research by today’s best young scientists, funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
$45 through May 2 (rate extended!)
$60 from May 3 through May 10 at 5:00 pm ET

EVENT DAY PACKET PICK-UP
Event day bib number pick-up will be available at Yankee Stadium inside the Team Store in the Great Hall. You can also pick up your Runyon 5K t-shirt inside the Great Hall before or after your run/walk. If you need to pick up on event day, we strongly encourage you to pick up your t-shirt AFTER your run/walk, since all bags need to be checked BEFORE you enter the Great Hall.
Bag check will be available for limited personal items in a U-Haul box truck that will be parked by Heritage Field on East 161st Street across from Babe Ruth Plaza. We encourage you to bring as little with you as possible. If you will have a bag to check, please make your way towards Heritage Field and look for the box truck. YOU MUST DROP YOUR BAG OFF AT THE TRUCK PRIOR TO ENTERING THE GREAT HALL OR THE HEAT LINE-UP. No bags are allowed on the route per Stadium Operations.
Parking will be available at the 164th Street Garage located at 951 River Avenue (at East 164th Street) and at the 153rd Street Garage located at 71 East 153rd Street (at River Avenue). Rates range from $15 – $35.
All 5K runners and walkers should review the event day details here.
We encourage all Runyon 5K participants to fundraise! Signing up to run or walk is just the first step – fundraising will make a difference! Not only that, but the money you give and raise could be matched by one of our generous donors, doubling its impact! See how the match works here.
